Top Cambrils Hotels
Cambrils, like other Costa Dorada resorts, enjoys milder temperatures than other Spanish destinations, and temperatures typically range from 20° Celsius to 26° Celsius from May to late August. The cooling Mediterranean breeze is especially refreshing during the warm, humid evenings and makes al fresco dining a real pleasure.
Similar to Salou, Cambrils lies on gently hilly ground, surrounded by mountains further inland. The soft, golden beaches that give the Costa Dorada it’s name gradually slope into the clear waters of the Mediterranean, offering shallow waters perfect for paddling, and the many restaurants dotted around the hillside offer truly outstanding views of the coastline and surrounding hillside.
Things To Do on Cambrils Holidays
In contrast to Salou, Cambrils retains a strong sense of its Spanish heritage and history, with many traditional aspects of Spanish life visible in the cobbled streets and architecture. Many of Cambrils’ attractions are richly historical, such as the Roman ruins of Roman Villa La Llosa, Vilafortuny Castle and the Church of Santa Maria. Cambrils is still a functioning fishing port, and visitors can see how the fish are landed and then auctioned before heading to the many outstanding seafood restaurants in the area.
In addition to the traditional Spanish flavour of the resort in general, visitors to Cambrils can enjoy trips to one of the many street markets that line the narrow, cobbled lanes or sample a classic Spanish fiesta. These traditional Spanish festivals play a significant role in the social and cultural atmosphere of Cambrils, with the local fair and the annual St. John’s Eve celebrations taking place in June, music festivals taking place in August and the Fiesta Mayor Mare Deu del Cami held every year in early September.
Cambrils offers a subdued, romantic nightlife scene, with the majority of the bars and restaurants proving popular with couples. The emphasis in Cambrils is on fine dining, and the nearly three miles of gently lit promenade make for an ideal chance for a slow, moonlit walk back to one of the many beachfront hotels in Costa Dorada nearby.
